Some of the best songs about methamphetamine are by hip-hop artists and other great meth songs are by rock stars. A few of the songs on this list of good meth songs may even surprise you.

Primus actually has at least two songs about meth. Their tracks “On the Tweek Again” and “Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweakers both made this list. Green Day make reference to being “spun,” a term that is associated with being high on meth, in their hit, “Brain Stew” and Marcy Playground allude to crystal meth as candy in their song, “Sex and Candy.”

Who knew that Third Eye Blind's up beat pop-rock track, “Semi-Charmed Life,” included some lyrics inspired by the stimulant? Maybe that's why it's so hard to get the song out of your head!
